Danks had surgery on the shoulder on Aug. 6 and MLB.com reports that he's "hit all his markers" in his recovery. The White Sox also have the luxury of not rushing Danks back because of their pitching depth. With Jake Peavy, Chris Sale, Gavin Floyd, Jose Quintana, Hector Santiago and several prospects who could be ready for the Major Leagues next season, the team is happy that Danks is able to take his time rehabbing the injury.
"It's nice to be able to insulate and not rush that," White Sox general manager Rick Hahn told MLB.com. "We always prefer to have more depth than less with pitching."
Danks, a left-hander, was 3-4 with a 5.70 ERA in nine starts last season. He is 57-60 with a 4.12 ERA in his six-year Major League career.
